CEO - what does the acronym mean?

CEO is an abbreviation for the position of Chief Executive Officer. In Polish, it means chairman of the board or CEO, i.e. the person holding the most important position in the organization. Sometimes the CEO is also the owner of the company, but this does not have to be the case - such a situation usually applies to small companies. Chief Executive Officer is the highest position in the hierarchy and gives ultimate executive power in the company. The responsibilities of such a person include creating the company's strategy, controlling the implementation of long-term plans and goals, leading the organization and making key decisions about the company, its development and future, such as investments, mergers and acquisitions.

CEO training - is it worth it?

As a CEO, it's worthwhile to take advantage of training and update your knowledge, as many management methods are now ceasing to work or proving ineffective despite their popularity and being scientifically disproven. For CEOs, training is not only an opportunity for development, but also an opportunity to network, expand your network and exchange experiences with others in a similar position. Inspiration from an industry other than one's own can be very useful and result in ideas for improving one's own company. Working in a group during the training and the support of an expert allows you to revise your current way of running your company and methods of managing your staff, which is a valuable, often unavailable feedback for CEOs. Our training also gives CEOs the opportunity to take advantage of diagnostics that help them get to know themselves better as leaders, verify their leadership style and their effectiveness.

CEO competencies - what kind of training?

Managing an organization requires extensive subject matter knowledge and both hard and soft skills. A CEO should have skills in strategy, leadership and management, negotiation, building relationships and business partnerships, finance and economic evaluation of the company. That's why it's a good idea for a CEO to choose a training course that teaches how to interpret changes in the business environment and update the company's business model. An important element is also the personal brand that leaders should develop. In our offer you will find training courses for CEOs that will suggest how to build strong personal branding, authority and influence in the organization. It is worthwhile to precede the choice of training with a diagnostic of the individual or the whole company, in order to determine where the competence gaps and sources of potential blocks to the organization's growth lie. The support of a coach or mentor can also help.

CEO training locations and schedule

Trainings are held in Warsaw at the headquarters of ICAN Institute. This is a convenient location close to the Wilanowska Metro station. We know that due to official duties and great responsibility, the CEO's time is very valuable, so classes are held in the mode of two-day meetings once a month. It is possible to make up the classes at another time without any problems - just inform in advance about your absence. This makes it easy for CEO training participants to reconcile development with work.
